What is this? medical

Bump behind my ear?

My initial thought is that it's a cyst but I'm not sure bc its hard, feels like bone. It doesn't hurt but it's a little tender.

So should i call my gp or my dermotologist?

That could be your lymph node. Call your primary.

I'd call your primary. Not sure what it is but the GP would probably get you in sooner and might be a better source for referral in case its needed.

Lymph node infected or clogged. Try warm compress and massage

I'd say possible abscess. Call your PCP.

I get those from time to time and they go away on their own, was told its just a swollen lymph node and to come back in if it gets worse or won't go away .
